They are attempting to make this easier, but the proposal author
hasn't been around when it was discussed (Last discussed during the C++
Standardization Meeting in Rapperswil). The paper is p0665:
I have concerns about all of the ways we do extension in C++ currently
(that was the point of the talk I linked in the originating thread). There
are a lot of tradeoffs. Hopefully Matt Calabrese's p1292 - Customization
Point Functions <https://wg21.link/p1292> will make a lot of that go away.
